MSU's Smith Finishes +8, Misses Cut

Midwestern State golfer Sam Smith, of Archer City, had an up-and-down second round at the HP Byron Nelson Championship in Las Colinas.

Smith birdied four holes, including three in a five-hole stretch from the fifth to the ninth, but he bogeyed five and double-bogeyed the fifteenth to finish +3 for the day and +8 for the tournament.

After a birdie on the 12th put him at 4-over for the tournament, he looked like he might be able to mount a run at the cut line, which moved during the day from 1-over to 3-over, but he finished +4 for the last six holes to end his chances.

He shaved two strokes off of his Thursday total on Friday.
